Mr. Bungle, who a year ago today announced their first live outings in two decades, have announced the release of The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny Demo on October 30th via Ipecac Recordings.

As was the case with the live performances, original Mr. Bungle members Trevor Dunn, Mike Patton, and Trey Spruance are joined by Scott Ian (Anthrax, S.O.D.) and Dave Lombardo (Dead Cross, Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies).

The 11-song release features tracks written by the Eureka, Calif.-born band for their 1986 cassette only demo as well as a reimagined cover of the S.O.D. classic Hypocrites / Habla Español O Muere (a.k.a. Speak English or Die) and Corrosion of Conformity’s Loss For WordsA video for Raping Your Mind is available now.

“Recording THIS music with THESE guys was an enormous head-rush of virtuosity and surprises every day in the studio,” explains Patton. “Trey’s video game-esque solos, Scott’s bionic right hand and cyborg-like precision, Dave’s caveman-meets-Bobby Brady-like drum fills, Trevor’s solid foundation and laser-focus to detail. There is nothing sweeter than getting your ass kicked by true comrades…where everyone has a singular drive and mission.”

  1. Wow ! I was lucky enough to see these guys in SF at the Warfield before the pandemic and it was awesome . I was hoping they would do something and it wasn`t going to be a one off . Patton gets forgotten about on most peoples list for best vocalist . He`s probably the most versiatile in genres of music and vocal sound effects and has incredible range .
    This video shows tidbits of all the weird shit he`s done, a true artist.

    1. He’s definitely underrated. Was lucky enough to see Faith open for Metallica/GnR bill. Incredible musicianship, talent and artistry.
